Continuing with their class novel ‘Street Child’ as inspiration, the children have explored a number of chapters through a variety of approaches: collecting evidence; drama techniques; writing in role and artistic representations. Having an extended opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the text has been a real treat, and the classroom became a hive of rich vocabulary and creative interpretation.
While World Book Day may have come and gone, the memories of the day’s activities still linger. Minds were put to the test when joining Year 5 for ‘The Bumper Book Quiz’. To top it off, Year 6 spent time in the afternoon sharing books with children from Reception – a role they undertook with great pride. It was wonderful to witness their engagement and empathy towards the younger children, sharing their knowledge and demonstrating the values fundamental to us here at St. Luke’s.
The children are underway with ‘Tales of the River Bank’, having worked collaboratively to reinforce the processes involved in the water cycle before plotting the stages of a river as it moves from source to mouth. Why not dig out those maps and atlases at home to help your child locate the source and mouth of the River Thames?
